Gervonta Davis, Ryan Garcia promise to break the other’s jaw
Undefeated boxers Gervonta Davis and Ryan Garcia are set to face off in a catchweight bout in a fight that promises not just a victory, but a broken jaw for the loser. Trash talk between the fighters in the lead-up to the event echoes the style of marketing used in mixed martial arts (MMA) and professional wrestling to add drama and excitement to fights. Davis has a remarkable record of knocking out opponents in 93% of his 28 professional fights since October 2014, while Garcia has knocked out 19 of his 23 professional opponents not by decision. The match has been dubbed a collision of styles, as Garcia has a 4-inch height advantage, a signature left hook and has fought at higher weights than Davis, who has had more headlining fights and been in the sport longer. Both fighters are expected to go all out with big shots in a sport that needs such crossover events to regrow its fan base.
